This month I wanted to feature a stellar posher one who’s followed my advice and my strategies and booming and flourishing in the community. Her name is @mferris321! You’ve probably seen her stuff through your feed because she is posh crazy! She started 8 months ago and she is on fire! Just like you and me, she got the posh bug when she listed something and it sold and made her a few extra bucks and now you can’t stop her. Continue reading Closet of the Month: February 2016
This site right now is under construction FYI so please excuse our dust here at HealthyGirlFashion.com! You may see the layout change from time to time, but rest assure, it’ll find it’s new look soon enough! If you like this look right now, then please feel free to leave a comment below!
The real reason why you’re tuned in. I don’t know if you know this closet or not, this closet is one of Poshmark’s hidden gems. I say this because I was first turned on to this particular posher’s closet when my good friend @krangle told me that she bought from this posher and that in their closet they have $25 Yves Saint Laurent heels and that they were stunning. So naturally I had to buy them since they were my size and bundle it with a $5 TADASHI shirt as well… yeah, that’s 100% right…$5!!! Not only has he (that’s right a HE) turned myself and @krangle but he’s also made a customer of long time posher @acephalous. We absolutely LOVE Jarod’s deals and he’s got some stellar deals. I would highly recommend that if you got paid today, I would spend your hard earned bucks here, because you are really gonna get some bang for your buck. Feel free to click on any of his pictures, it will take you straight to his closet! Now without further adieu, ladies and gents, I would like to introduce you to Mr. Jarod Wagner!
@jare1993: Hey everyone! My name is Jarod Wagner. I am 21 and was born and raised in Los Angeles. I am currently in school, studying psychology in hopes of becoming a marriage and family therapist. I would love to also be something along the lines of a personal shopper or something fashion related. I’m always giving my female friends designer items I find at thrift stores, and they are always telling me how I should become their stylist haha.
I am a pretty easy going person, so I have fun doing many things. I go thrift store shopping very often (at least four times a week – I know, I have a problem haha), as I love to hunt for designer bargains hidden in racks of clothing. I also really like collecting antiques! I used to dress with more of a vintage style years ago when I was in high-school. but over the years I have become more and more familiar with designer items, labels, and just more familiar with fashion in general. I started doing resale on clothing four or five years ago. I got started doing that because I would always see fantastic designer finds that were women’s, and I would be so bummed having to leave them behind since they didn’t usually look good on me. Then I got the idea to start reselling so that way I could find people who would love and enjoy the great items. Other things I enjoy doing are reading, going to flea markets, collecting vinyl records and listening to them, shopping, exploring this fun city with my friends and loved ones, and of course, poshing!
HGF: It’s pretty rare to see men on Poshmark. How did you find Poshmark?/ What made you start selling on Poshmark?
@jare1993: My aunt actually knew I did clothing resale and suggested it to me a year or two ago. I made an account then, but just started using it for selling and buying, a few weeks ago. I was hesitant when my aunt told me about it, since many clothing resale apps are very difficult to deal with and are a hassle. I was extremely happy though when I started using Poshmark in seeing how easy it is to use! I absolutely love it and have in the process of getting my friends to join it too.
HGF: What do you like most about Poshmark?
@jare1993: The thing I love most about Poshmark is how fast and easy they make it, coupled with how incredibly welcoming and friendly everyone on here has been. I like seeing my items selling to people who I can tell are really going to enjoy them. Everyone has been so sweet on here though, which makes it even more fun and enjoyable to sell and buy on this app.
HGF: Name some ways that you like stay healthy.
@jare1993: There are a number of ways I stay healthy! I run on my elliptical at least a few days a week, schedule permitting. I make sure to give myself some time to relax, so that I don’t run myself into the ground. Also, a big way I try to stay healthy is by sticking up for myself and encouraging others to stick up for themselves in life. Life definitely has it’s ups and downs, but when you are able to be aware of how you perceive things and making sure you only have people in your life whom treat you like you deserve, you will realize that those are such significant healthy life tools that will last you a lifetime. 🙂
HGF: Thanks so much Jarod for giving us a chance to get to know more about you and I hope people will be shopping and enjoying your items as much as I do! I hope to see you, and all Southern California poshers at the Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills for an exclusive LIVE Poshparty February 4, 2015! See details for it here!

So this month as I’ve been looking through closets, one in particular had caught my eye. This gorgeous gem Athena Meder whose closet blows me away! Not to mention what a knock out beauty she is! I really love her stuff and reading in about some of the amazing things going on in her life it’s hard not love her heart! So enough about me, I hope you all get a chance to look at and shop her amazing closet! If you’d like to check out her closet, just click on any of the pictures and it will take you straight there. Now, introducing Ms. Athena Meder:
1) So tell the Poshworld a little about yourself!
My name is Athena Meder I am a Pageant girl! I am currently Americas National Ambassador, along with being Miss Great Plains for the Americas Us Miss System. I am also Ms. Missouri for Americas Natural Supreme Beauties. I love pageantry it is very rewarding. I love that I gain sisters that I’ve never had through it and that I get to affect change in someone else’s life! I am also an avid volunteer with wounded warriors and local animal shelters. I have lots of hobbies and try to divide my free time up between crafting, sewing, reading, horseback riding, and of course SHOPPING!!
2) So I noticed you have other closets where you sell different things. What are the names of those closets and what do you sell?
I actually have 4 personal closets between a house and an apartment (Pageant closet, Off season clothing closet, Overflow closet, and the current season closet) major shopping addict here. Those 4 closets combine to be 1 poshmark closet where I sell everything from my brand new never worn clothing, to pageant dresses, to some used clothing. I try to clean out the off-season closet every few months so my poshmark closet gets new clothing every week! Since I add new clothing every week to my poshmark closet I also clean it out once a month, I only look at listings from the previous month that have no likes and I slowly drop the price, at the end of each month I take these items to Plato’s Closet, and 2 local consignment shops. The max a single item stays in my pm closet is about 6 months, I like to keep things fresh in my closet while trying to make back some of the money I spent. So if you see it, Don’t just Like it!!
BUT I haven’t really shared this with anyone but family and friends, I am launching an online boutique called ReigningRoses that will be stocked with upcycled clothing that I designed and made. In the theme to Reduce Reuse and Recycle this is what I do, I reuse clothing and upcycle it into something new, in that theme everything is One-Of-A-Kind!
3) How long have you been on Poshmark and what stuff do you keep in your closet to sell?
I have been a Poshmark member for close to 2 years, I stock my closet with my own personal clothing most of which is brand new or worn once. I have a tini-weenie shopping problem.
4) When you are shopping what brands or styles are you usually shopping for?
I am more of an on trend or trendsetter shopper, I was wearing leg warmers back in 2010 before they were cool again, I shop for a range of clothing and I have a little bit of everything in my closet, bohemian, business, edgy, rocker, vintage ect. It just depends on my mood! I do love Michael Kors, his clothing is my go to effortless style when I am not dressed to the T for a pageant event and for Pageantry my go to is Johnathan Kayne! These Men are brilliant and I wouldn’t shop anywhere else if they didn’t make me broke so quickly, that’s why im grateful for a place like Poshmark!
Thanks so much for reading in! Hope this month brings you all a lot of sales this month and wonderful presents too!
